Anil, son of former MLA of H D Kote, late Chikkamadu, has bid good bye to Janata Dal (Secular) and will be officially joining the Congress soon.
Anil Chikkamadu’s decision to quit the JD(S) in Hale Mysuru region is a setback to the party headed by Supremo H D Deve Gowda. Anil Chikkamadu has decided to join Congress as he was allegedly sidelined by the JD(S) leadership.
